About Ekam

We  are basically working for the healthcare of  underprivileged children in  TamilNadu, India .

 We admit poor children in private hospitals with whom we have networked and reimburse the subsidies given by them. We bring in support for the hospitalization (secondary & tertiary care) of the children admitted in pvt.hospitals and renting ventilators , lab support & medicines for the  children of  Government Hospitals . Children by definition for us is  below 19yrs.

Ekam was formally inaugurated on Doctor’s day July 1st 2007 as a Community Pediatric Project of CIOSA( Confederation of  Indian Organisations for service and Advocacy) which is the CSR initiative of Mafoi foundation .

We  are also happy to inform you that Ekam changed into a Public private partnership model by joining hands with the government health department. on 14th Nov, 2008.

Ekam Foundation spun off as separate organization in August 2009.

 We  have partnered with another NGO, Disha  foundation and have now come up with a health assurance model  called Paripoorna Bala Suraksha ( PBS) which is a Comprehensive Pediatric Health Coverage for very poor children in Chennai, Thiruvallur  and Kancheepuram.

Ekam has got the official permission  from NRHM- National Rural Health Mission for appointing 344 Nurses in 37 Medical College Hospitals and District Head Quarters Hospitals in the entire State and Monitoring all the 41 Sick Newborn care units(SCNU) established in the State for reducing the Neonatal Mortality Rate as a part of Public Private Partnership initiative. We have also got the official permission to do the equipment maintenance in all the SNCUs. 

Based on this we have partnered with NGOs like NDSO( Networking and Development Centre for Service Organisations), TNVHA( Tamil Nadu Voluntary Health association), TN Forces and other NGOs , started a community monitoring project Bala Arogya Suraksha Project.

So far we have reached out to  more than 1200 children  needing hospitalization support. A total of 80,000 children screened so far.  Till now a total  of Two crore rupees support in the form of drugs, lab investigations , equipments , manpower and support of secondary and tertiary care in private hospitals has been facilitated   by Ekam by bringing in individuals, trusts, corporates and service clubs support to the 3 major Government hospitals, Institute of Child Health, Chennai, Government Rajajee Hospital , Madurai and  Chengalpet Government hospital, Kancheepuram.

We have started our Research and Development wing by partnering with Samanvaya and soon going to start Prajna research Initiative on Maternal and Child Healh.

Inspite of a huge  outstanding to our drug suppliers, labs and company renting out ventilators  we can never say no to the next child who is referred to us for support.
